Subject: This is The One!!
What a generous show, too! The Dead part of the show is already 3 1/2 hours, then there's an over one-hour set with the ABB guys, and that's not counting sets by somebody or some band called Wet Willie plus ABB in the afternoon (according to Deadbase). All together, it was probably at least 7 hours of music, stretching from mid-afternoon until around 2:30 AM! What major venue would let a band play until 2:30 AM these days? Most of them have 11:00 PM curfews (thanks, Clear Channel!). And how much did folks pay for the show, even adjusted for inflation? Probably a lot less than in 2023 as well.
Subject: What a great time
I had a great time & wandered through the crowd, making my way backstage an hour or so later. A roadie with the Allman Brothers shared a little Cocaine with me. It was a good time.

Subject: Spare none For thee, Our Wretched Eyes
And, yet, I was not there. I have never felt the light of the Dead play to me so sweetly in the flesh. I did not experience a single Tour from the 1970’s. I don’t know that Love. What remains, but the stories? That’s all I could ever ask for, and in some way, the life I live here in this time, is impacted forever because of those simple, unique experiences all of us take upon. It’s a choice to be Alive, a simple decision to Lead ourselves on a path toward Salvation.
Peace ~ Nick.

Subject: Sweet Memories!
I'm a big fan of Birdsong, largely for the jams they did within it, and this one is the longest I know of...beautifully rendered. Playin'ITB follows to end the first set, and by this time it was completely dark...and we all got a mind-blowing surprise. Right when the final bars of Playin' started, the finale, someone (Healy?) in the sound booth out in the audience set off some major fireworks high into the night sky. So, during the final chords of the song, we get this visual extravaganza, everybody with their heads tilted back, gazing up in major euphoria.
Even though a bit of the magic from how extremely "together" they were is lost in these recordings, it's still a great stream, especially Charlie's transfer. Buy yourself a really good desktop stereo if you haven't already, and enjoy!
Subject: This is one of the best live concerts!
Subject: Best show ever?
After all these years, it's still one of the two best shows I ever saw from any artist. The "regular" portion of the show was so good that the jam with most of the ABB was almost an anticlimax. Almost, but not quite...

Subject: Never gets old
Everyone's in top form here. Jerry's prob mixed a tad high here for my taste on the jams, but it's not like he's playing wrong notes or anything. Bobby's flanged guitar sound is the juicy peach, spurtin all over the place. Jerry tries to decoratively lay his creamy wah on top and succeeds often enough ....
Put on your dancing shoes, turn on your lovelight and luxuriate in the beauty.

Jack Straw, Looks like Rain, Eyes, GDTR, just all the best and more. Thank you very much to David Hollister and G.S. Hamilton. This would be one to carry with me.
Subject: Morning Dew Opener
When I can time travel (after death, I hear) I know where I'M going. Phil sounds beautiful as hell on Ramble On Rose. Wowza.
Subject: A Personal Favorite
A particularly brain melting Playin' with one of the best Eyes ever performed following. Eyes is very jazzy and upbeat with crisp keys providing the perfect background for Jerry to play to. The keys are so prominent it's almost approaching ragtime. This is exactly what makes 73 great though, there's such a variety in the playing. It seems almost wrong to love the keys so much especially because this show is so close to Pigpen's death in the Dead's chronology. His death, while a somber event, marked the point at which the Dead were really able to explore their sound without being pushed in a blues/ rock n roll direction instead of their preferred psychedelic sound.
For me, the highlight of the show is Dark Star. Jerry's playing is bouncy with the perfect amount of echo. Phil is definitely on phire in this Star. Another jazzy rendition as well. I want to point out the incredible jam starting around 6 minutes but really picking up at 7:30. My first time hearing this Dark Star I was absolutely blown away by this playing. I stopped what I was doing, turned it up all the way, and just let those chords pass right through me. Easily one of the most unique jams in a Dark Star. Reminiscent of Allman Bros in my opinion, interestingly enough they were actually at this show and joined them for the third set. Phil takes off around 10 minutes with Jerry's notes seeming to fall from the sky and land like droplets onto Phil's sea of almost tangible bass notes. Gosh, another great moment that just screams Allman Bros is at 12 minutes and ends when they get into the song at 13:30 or so. The band settles into a nice groove here as Jerry sings the first verse. I love how Phil becomes the focus at so many points during this song, especially at 17 minutes. The 20 minute mark turns a little spastic and takes them into a really bizarre, abstract jam that solicits one or two yells from heads in the crowd (maybe they knew an excellent He's Gone was up next) but doesn't do much for me personally. With that being said, this top performance of Dark Star comes to a subtle close and the band creeps into He's Gone.
The crowd claps along to He's Gone, totally into it. Again Phil's bass slaps me in the face at the 10 minute mark in this song. I'm not quite sure what the loud cracking noise that pops up occasionally throughout this show- sounds almost like a slapstick or even fireworks. Regardless, the jam into Wharf Rat is just as beautiful as this particular rendition.
Once again the crowd claps and sings along as the band breaks into a quick paced Truckin'. Sugar Magnolia, as opposed to some other performances, is well developed and pretty tight. No matter what Sugar Mag puts me in a good mood. The set ends with Promised Land. For me, no top show from 73 is lacking in a killer Chuck Berry song.
The whole third set with the Allman Bros is a classic in my opinion. Warren Zevon once said, "Enjoy every sandwich" and the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA from this show is certainly a sandwich to be enjoyed.
All in all an excellent show. One that appeals to all sorts of Deadheads who all have their own favorite eras and songs. Likewise, this is a show which seems to appeal to all sorts of music lovers. The Dead transition so fluidly from rock riffs to jazz grooves to spacey, surrealist jams in this show it will make most people smile at one point or another. I was left smiling almost the whole show, for that I award it 5 stars.

One thing I remember about the show was how hot it was (this was an afternoon show). I managed to exit to the parking lot and convince one of the gatekeepers to allow me to bring in my cooler filled with beer, soda and water.

Subject: being satisfied with what we have
Thanks for taking me way back to the days of yore, where up in northern Minnesota, closer to Canada than Saint Paul, we knew when we saw the Northern Lights it meant we could drive out of town to the woods somewhere and drink, smoke and tune into AM Rock-N-Roll from Chicago Land Radio...while taking the local radio likes of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn for granted, but HEY MAN it was PARTY TIME!!!...so OK, very local: you had to be quiet cuz it didn't sound so good loud on car radio broadcasting 800 miles away, plus sounds carry over water, ice, all year, sister, and who wants to be busted, etc...
And so, today, as I lean in to my laptop to absorb each & every note,chord, phrasing, everything of this unbelievable gem, while my neighbors and passing cars outside are blasting and booming everything under the sun for all to hear,...I am grateful, truly grateful, for this experience.

Subject: Dead Allman Show
Allmans came on that evening and played a great set. Sunday Wet Willie then Allmans then Dead.
Betts and Trucks? joined the Dead about mid night and jammed for another 1 1/2 hours. A lot of the crowd had left we moved down right in front of the stage. Jerry was just plucking away looking into the eyes of Dickie never once at his own guitar just that big smile and rolling eyes. It was wild. Our ride had to leave before midnight to return his fathers car so he could get to work. We slept on the grass outside the stadium that night. 4 am on a Sunday night and there are these little kids on bicycles riding around chit chatting with us. We managed to get a ride to NYC the next morning from a kid that had slept in his car all night. Hitched back to UMass from NYC.
A lot of people might criticize this show but the temps were so hot and the cavernous stadium does not allow for great acoustics. The show was memorable and fantastic. The indoor shows from that era had better sound but not the spirit of this event. IMHO the Dead were at their best from 1971 - 1977. Although I never saw them pre 1971.
Subject: Peace, folks
And what we have here is a gem of a recording from a gem of a show. It took the band a little while to find its groove after Pig Pen's departure and subsequent death. We hear them starting to hit their stride again at this monster gig at RFK.
Great performance and great quality sound.
Thanks to all those who make enjoying these recordings possible.
Subject: Nice, but
But I'm sorry Edith, I do have regrets and that is a major one.
Just bumbled across this site and I'm in Dead heaven!
Thank you for all the recordings.
I am loving this.
(Sorry about the oil, sure it's not all our fault)
Subject: Islam Sucks
Plus a great show... rare 5 satrs from me!!
Subject: i change my vote
I don't want to completely dump on this one though, there are certainly many great moments, such as the monumental versions of Playing in the Band and Dark Star found here, some of the best of the year. Phil is fantastic in both.
The Dark Star especially is wonderful, where he takes a long solo. After Lesh's solo comes a really unique passage with him and jerry driving the band towards a very melodic and jazzy jam right before the 1st verse.
And there are also really nice versions of Here Comes Sunshine, Stella Blue, Hes Gone, and also They Love Each Other, which i mentioned in my previous review.
The 3rd set with the Allmans is what elevates this show to 4 star material, containing classic jams including the only That's Alright Mama and a great NFA>GDTRFB.
But like i said before, this show is a perfect example of why Spring and Fall '73 are so much better than Summer.
Subject: I was there both days.
Subject: Rainbow was real!
I have only been able to verify the truth of this story with my wife of thirty three years this June."
Sweetmp3, I was there with two vans full of friends, and we all saw that rainbow in the mist of the tiny cloud, and the music seemed to respond to the sight. I also saw a few lighting bolts, but that's sleep deprivation. There were problems very early Sun. morning, people running around the outside walk of the stadium and lot of yelling for help ? We were with out phones then, and it was a ghetto, so we hunkered down in the vans. Great show though, Wet Willie, whew, he really soaked his satin outfit, Crazy dude, blew us all away, when we were peaking. I remember taping the faucet on the very top row with a small vice grip. It was hot and muggy, and the garbage trucks down below looked like giant cockroaches come to nibble on the stadium, and the uneven roof looked like it was slowly revolving. It had to be the second day for the rainbow, because we were in front of Dicky Betts and Greg the day before sipping on johnny walker red.
Subject: maybe overrated but !
Subject: a treasure
Subject: Gotta Love '73
They really do slaughter Ramble, and half of Row Jimmy, though the latter they pull together nicely at the end. Somebody said Lazy...and I have to agree, at least the first half of the show. Certainly not the apathy we've come to expect from an otherwise energetic year.
But, we take the good with the bad. This show is as much about quantity as anything. What band plays 30+ songs in a night? And don't count those new garbage radio emo kids' bands whose songs are all 3 minutes long and lip synced.
Good Train to Cry, nice, exploratory Eyes, and great but brief Race is On. All in all, A+, for effort if nothing else.
PS-Take it from a published poet and college English teacher...that's NOT poetry. You could write that by spilling your refrigerator magnets. Poems ARE, contrary to popular belief, supposed to make sense, have meaning, and go beyond strings of cliches. Besides that, this isn't a poetry forum. SORRY to the rest of you. It's just a pet peeve of mine.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" June 10, 1973, at RFK Stadium, Washington, District of Columbia, U.S.A.
Super 73' Soundboard!
5 stars for the mix, recording, performance & transfer.
We piled into Mason's car and drove from Brooklyn to DC. RFK Stadium was huge. Filled to the brim with DEAD Heads, an ocean of hot sweaty bodies baking in the sun. I can't remember who came on first, I think the GRATEFUL DEAD played all day, and the Allman Brothers played all night...a memorable show...I still have my ticket from the show.
After the show we got lost in the "hood" trying to get out of DC...I told Mason, don't stop at the red lights man...keep drivin!!! Our car was being pelted with garbage, drinks, rocks...I said Drive man, drive!
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

Subject: This show is incredible!
Disregarding a few blemishes on the reels, this is a great sounding show and I think it belongs in every deadheads collection.
Subject: Great Show!
When the transfer starts, make note of the server (it's ia200033.eu.archive.org). FTP to that server; you'll find several folders, numbered 0,1,2,3 etc - the one we're looking for is in folder 2. Scroll down a little through the various shows until you get to the folder labeled gd73-06-10. Highlight the tracks you want (in my case VBR MP3, but there are other choices) and then transfer them to whatever folder you want.
Subject: It was a Monster Show !
Subject: Allman Bros without Duane = Grateful Dead without Jerry
Subject: Good, not the best.
Subject: What happened ?
Subject: Don't Believe the Hype
I will say that the 2nd set picks up a bit and there are great performances of Eyes of the World and Dark Star. I was actually jamming right along through He's Gone and then came Wharf Rat. This is without a doubt the worst performance of this song that I've heard.
The 3rd set (4th disc) has some memorable moments and some excellent jamming starting with "That's Allright Mama". This set really is excellent and is worth listening to or obtaining.
Overall, although there are some gems in this show (Eyes, Star, 3rd set jams), as a whole it is a poor performance with poor sound. I'm glad I have it for the few songs that really stand out. This show has gone from 4 discs to a 2 disc "highlights" disc for me.
2-star rating. For me, an "average" Dead show is worth 2.5 stars (not that average isn't worth listening to). Overall, start to finish, this show as a whole is below average. The first set gets no star, the 2nd gets 2.5 and the third gets 4.5, so in sum it's about a 2-star show with some outstanding highlights.
Subject: Another way to download this show
I downloaded this show from http://www.bootlegarchive.com/login.asp?account.asp . You have to sign up and then use the peer to peer network (DC++) in order to download it but someone is usually sharing it so you should be able to download it. It's not ideal but it's worth it to jam to this incredible show in the car, on the home stereo etc...

The show was enhanced for both of us and my mind was completely blown apart by the music. I had no idea why the music souned so strange at the time but Phil had his guitar wired each string to four huge stacks of speakers about 70 yards from the stage. He played with the stadium echo during Playing in the Band and I haven't been the same since. I can't speak for the experience of my wife but an interesting story evolved that day.
You did not need a ticket because after the Deadheads got in some of them opened the other gates. The stadium ultimately ran out of food so we tried to leave to eat during the break. When we got to one of the gates, a rent-a-cop says, "Where are you going?" Both of us freaked, turned around and walked back into the crowd. These rent-a-cops were riding around the RFK stadium on scooters and all Heads were toasted. It was scary and in our enhanced state we thought that they had decided to keep us all here for observation or something. We actually found a pay phone, called home to tell a friend who was to arrive for the show the next day and informed his girlfriend's uncle that they won't let you leave when once you get into the show.
A while later we found another gate to our liking and the guy let us leave as long as we knew we couldn't return. Out in the parking lot we managed to get lost, asked directions of another Deadhead who spouted something unintelligable that made perfect sense, we drove around the lot together our car and his in a vast maze. My wife to be were lost in that lot long enough to see before we left that there was a single cloud over RFK with a rainbow running through it.
I have only been able to verify the truth of this story with my wife of thirty three years this June.

"words do no harm..."
water threads the wheel of co-creation.

Subject: This one's for Robert
Best part of shows like these is I turned it on this morning at 7:30 when I got to work. Listening in between conference calls and interviews and meetings. In the background on some of the calls. It's now 3:30 and I feel like i've gone through the whole trip and deserve the big rock and roll finale. and maybe something cold in the parking lot is waiting for me. and Robert.
Throw the Allman Bros. in the mix, and you have a pure american classic.
ENJOY! but damn, download, this shit is gold
The third set can certainly be a stand alone show of covers.
Everything about this show is pure brilliance.

The ABB's sets aren't as flawlessly executed as The Dead's, but they're worth having all the same.
Now that this download is available I can finally get rid of the 30 year-old nth generation, decayed bootleg cassette I have of this show.

Only three months after Pigpen's passing and they're moving on into the next phase. Can't go back and can't stand still -- it made 'em great.

That being said, the Thats Alright Mama is first rate. I think most of the second and third sets is pretty good, too.

Dought Dwane was there unfortunetly, Merl is sourced as being present, But the star in mix is Dicky, That's alright mama is hopping, i always thought that Goin down the road could easly extend into a Blue Sky seemlessly.
The Levels may not be cranked, but they are great, and should be of no reason not to download and enjoy, RFK, Kezar and Rosevelt sound like one big party to me : ) Butch Trucks on drums fits very well by the way with billy.

Subject: The best show I ever missed
What if I hadn't dosed so hard on Saturday?(Third time I had dosed,first time I really got off)What if I had picked up a bag of trash that day?They handed out free tickets to the Sunday show to those that did.What if I had known I would see The Dead 201 times over the next twenty-two years?
Well now I know what I missed.Never mind the recording quality,it was 1973 after all.Three sets.Merl and the ABB.First Train To Cry of seven.First That's All Right Mama of two.Last Wave That Flag.Box Of Rain to soon dissappear for thirteen years.Here Comes Sunshine played for another year until it dissappears for eighteen years.And oh yeah Morning Dew to open.Download this show for it's historical signifigance because the band surely never played anything like this again.
Thanks again to archive.org!
Subject: Awesome show , so good even dirty Jev-hole found it.
This show is a top 10 for the year but a little overated in my arogant opinion. Get the Feb,May, and Nov shows first, then come back. Besides if the boys pull this one off to pimp it on itunes there'll be a least 60,000 copies of this bad boy out there to get off of others who grabbed it first.

It is most likely just me, but i can almost hear where the organ would fit in truckin, my passion has shifted from sports to keys, for the time being. or so i say. lets hope next year i can work both in some way or another ;) keep on truckin always rememebr to be on the look out for new music, new ideas, new adventures, many more places to reach. adonai my friends. Much Peace and Love, truckin has totally just got me there. hahahahaaa

I have always been a big fan of RFK and this one is no exception. I never knew they even played there that early. I'm learning things about the dead(and other bands)that I thought I knew. RFK was huge and they were playing there when they were only 8 years old!(the dead) I was only 3! May the Music NEVER Stop!

On sunday the Bros went on before the Dead. At The end of their set, half of the audience left the stadium. So what had been a massive audience was reduced to a nice private party for Dead Heads. Either Bob or Jerry commented on it from the stage and invited everyone to come up closer. As you can see by the two days set lists, Sunday was the killer show.
Subject: good stuff
gather this one and strap it on.
Here comes Sunshine's one of my favoritz,
this one preceeds a Dark Star ending in Wharf Rat.
oh yea, the Allmans are in the mix too.
Its a shame theres not more Allman Brothers music out there, and I've gotten about all they have here off the archive.
Anybody know where i can quench my thirst for more Allmans??????

The levels are low on this recording. Once downloaded it is a good idea to put it through the wang-dangger (your sound editing program)and raise the soundlevels to max out at 0db. If you are skilled at normalizing you may want to normalize. I only add a smather of normalization because too much diminishes overall instrument dynamics and the quiet breaks.
There is a lot of squeeze and fluctuation in the high end as if someone mastered this using dolby on a non dolby encoded tape.
There has to be a better audience recording out there somewhere.

The first set starts with Morning Dew,the 2nd with Eyes. Need I say more? Okay, the Bird Song,Playin and Dark Star are fantastic- Jerry is in true form.But wait - who's that joining them onstage for the 3rd Set? The Allman Bros.? Here's where the trip gets twisty folks, for at times you can't tell whether it's Jerry jamming with the Allmans, or the Allmans backing up the Dead. Who cares? It's fantastic! Can you say supergroup? A must have for 1973.

Set III features some tasty Jessica licks from Dicky Betts dueling with Garcia. Unfortunately, neither Duane Allman nor Berry Oakley could be there as they were deceased at the time.
